Help - so much pain.

I am 10 days from having my hysterectomy surgery. I have had Vicodin prescribe and have taken it habitually. The last three days the pain has been unbearable. I can barely sit up. The pain meds aren't doing much but keeping me from passing out. I sat at an er for 5 hours before finally leaving in exhaustion from all but convulsing. I don't know what to do. My doctor isn't in the office again for two days. It feels like my uterus exploded. What should I do? Is there anything that could have happened inside to have caused this signicant difference in pain? Any thoughts would be appreciated. I'm very close to calling an ambulance where as its almost impossible for me to sit up long enough to wait in the er.

Re: Help

You need to be seen by a doctor. Your doctor may not be in the office for two more days, but you should still be able to call his number and reach whichever doctor is coverying for yours. If you can't do that, go to the ER. Tell them you were there before but had to leave because you were in too much pain to wait. You shouldn't be in this much pain. Please let us know how you make out.

Re: Help - so much pain.

I apparently read your post as 10 days post-op, instead on 10 days pre-op. Regardless, I am glad you are going to the emergency room and I hope your pain comes to an end very soon!!

Re: Help - so much pain.

I'm not any better. I went to the er again (a different one) Saturday night. Sat for 3 hours and heard someone say they had been there for 8 hours. I talked my husband out of calling for an ambulance out of embarrassment. A decision I of course regret. I'm calling my doctor this morning. Praying for relief.

Re: Help - so much pain.

Stanner, I totally understand your "embarrassment". I had my surgery done on Jan 31 and have had 2 post op infections. one was 5 days post op and the second just this past Friday. You need to call the gyne oncall and get in asap. Ask for blood work and ultrasound. I had a hematoma that had an infection starting and then I had intense pain on my right side and felt a "knot" and it turned out to be a fluid collection just under the sutures and they were able to drain it bedside... finally feeling like I am starting to heal... The lesson I learned was: we know our bodies best, listening to it is what we do. Do not leave the ER or DRs without having those tests done... JMHO! Wishing you luck...
